Angela Walker wins name the Bar and Restaurant 

During the month of December we ran a name the Deer Run bar and restaurant contest and Angela came up with what our team felt was a great name.  Looking for something we could associate with a course called Deer Run Angela's entry was The Krooked Antler which fits very well.  Thanks Angela Walker for a great name and thanks for being a fan of our golf course.

Our bar and the restaurant are open daily from 11:00 am til dusk during the golfing season! During the off season we are open on a partial schedule.  Now serving beverages, food and fun to golfers and the general public. Give us a call to see what's going on. Big screen TVs to watch golf, that Cubs/Cards game, your favorite football or basketball team plus bragging rights for low score from the golf game you just finished leads to great fun. Come join us whether or not you are playing golf and stopping in for a cool down or just out and about and want to stop by for lunch, a mid day break or a casual evening. Deer Run Golf Course needs to be your destination. It's a great day to say Deer Run Hamilton is my home course!

The 2020 Spring Youth Golf Clinic is scheduled for 4 Saturday's in May at 11:00am each day with a picnic planned following the last session on May 23rd.  The other sessions will be May 2nd, May 9th, and May 16th.  One lucky child will win a new set of fitted golf clubs during the picnic in a drawing from those who have attended this free Youth Clinic.

The future of golf every where hinges on the younger generations and we at Deer Run Recreational Association want to promote that. Each year we host our Spring Youth Clinic attended by dozens of young golfers from age 4 to 18. Sessions are held Saturday mornings for a couple of hours over a 4 weekend period where groups of future golfers learn about golf etiquette, the grip, the swing, how to putt, etc. The cost of this clinic to the parents of these kids??? Nothing!  It’s on us and we hope to be able to always say that. Our next 4 weekend clinic is scheduled for the month of May in 2020.

We value our High School teams so have made arrangements with the Boys and Girls golf teams here at West Hancock (Titans), Hamilton, Illinois, and across the river in Keokuk, Iowa, (Chiefs) to use our practice facilities on a scheduled basis and during their respective seasons. All on us!

If you are a golfer for either of these teams, become a member here at Deer Run and save $20 on a student membership. If you are age 11 to 18, play golf here for $10 and if you are age 10 and under it’s free when accompanied by an older family member.

Tee times are usually not a necessity as we are able to accommodate most 4-somes. It’s always wise to call ahead to find out just in case so please call (217) 847-3623 during posted business hours (usually 7:30am to 8:00pm). If it is necessary and for groups of 8 golfers or more, tee times can be reserved up to 7 days in advance. Singles may be paired with an existing twosome or threesome. Outings are encouraged to call as far in advance as possible.

Cancellation Policy: At least 24 hours’ notice must be given to cancel or request changes to your tee time. Please do not send emails requesting tee times, changes, or cancellations. All changes and cancellations should be made promptly by calling the golf shop at (217) 847-3623.

Deer Run has a full service pro shop where logo cloths, towels, gloves, and hats are available for sale. We have a selection of golf balls at a variety of prices for your game, tees and other golf essentials, as well as a few putters and wedges for that gift to your avid golfer or when it just feels right that the old putter or wedge needs to be replaced.

Our dining area is available for parties, be they class reunions, birthdays and graduations, wedding receptions, and gatherings of all kinds. Our kitchen will provide the food from sandwiches and sides to steak dinners or fried chicken with all the usual trimmings of baked potato, salad, veggies, etc.

Our kitchen is open daily for food at the turn, after you finish, or just to stop in and have lunch.

The Krooked Antler Bar provides the drinks to go with conversation and bragging rights or to cool down and relax after that rememberable round. Watch golf on the big screen or that baseball game you can’t miss. Plans include having our pro shop, the Krooked Anther, and the kitchen open year-round for your fun. Hang out, play cards, plan your gathering at Deer Run.

Our course and club house are available for your golf outing large or small. Pricing depends upon the size of your group and the services you are purchasing. Give us a call and we will get it put together for you and your group.

You say Class Reunion... Birthday... Graduation… Wedding Reception…

How about “I have some friends”, looking to hang out, maybe play cards, watch the Masters, US Open, that big game everyone is talking about, eat and have a few beverages… but my basement isn’t large enough, or finished, or it’s just too much work…

Either way, give us a call and we will see how we can help. Reserve the dining room starting at $100 depending upon the day of your party, the services you want, and the size of your group. There is lots of potential at Deer Run so be creative and check us out!
